Children's website promoting humane principles is recipient of Parents' Choice Award.

Animaland.org, the children's website operated by The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) was awarded a Gold Award from the Parents' Choice Foundation's Spring 2004 Parents' Choice Awards. Animaland.org competed in the 2004 Small Screen Category. The gold honor is awarded to books, toys, games, videos, software, magazines, audio recordings, websites and television programs that are judged as the highest quality, most appealing products in their genre.

"We are thrilled and honored that Animaland has been recognized by such a prestigious foundation," says Mary Lazzeri ASPCA Senior Manager, Internet Communications. "This award will undoubtedly pave the way for Animaland to reach more children, instilling the highest standards of humane values which in the end, is our ultimate goal."

The Parents' Choice Foundation was established in 1978 with the mission to provide parents with information to participate wisely in their children's learning. The Parents' Choice judges focus on how a product helps a child grow in many ways: socially, intellectually, emotionally, ethically and physically.

Animaland.org is produced by the ASPCA Communications department with the help and contributions of the ASPCA Humane Education department. In the summer of 2003, the site was given an "updated look" complete with cartoon animations and new character designs.
